Michael Jackson, BAD (1987)

Label: Epic

J. Cole: “I know that out of all the Michael Jackson albums, you could say Thriller or Off The Wall, depending on who you are. But this was the first Michael Jackson album that I had and listened to religiously. I had the white cassette tape. I played it everyday. I played ‘Man In The Mirror’ out. My favorite song was ‘Dirty Diana.’ I just have great memories of that album and that’s how I became a Michael Jackson fan.”
